03/13/2014, ~ ~ Bill - Here's another one of Simeon and Elizabeth's children. Asenath Collier married James A Gault 30 September 1858 in Mason County, KY. She was born 19 March 1842 in Trimble Co. KY and died 30 September 1907 in Platte County and is buried in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery with her husband and daughter. He died in 1866 which is a year after the war ended. I think he may have been a Confederate and spent most of his time as a prisoner. She doesn't seem to have drawn a pension.

Simeon's one and only wife was Elizabeth Berkshire daughter of Jeremiah Berkshire. How do I know this? The Bible told me so. Simeon Collier's old buckskin covered Bible, last known owner was Donald Singleton.

Thanks for connecting Simeon to his parents. That family is finally complete [according to the Bible] Wilda"
